Felix's Green Scheme is a simple A to B collection and delivery service, collecting surplus food from supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and delis and then delivering it straight out to local Community Organisations in Central London to support people in need of food relief.

The operation is completely green - volunteers complete pre-determined routes on foot, bicycle or using one of our electric vans depending on the route.

We are completely powered by volunteers and are always looking for new recruits to join the team and our food rescue mission. Get involved today!

When and where can I volunteer?

Driving routes are currently operating in Victoria, Barbican and Camden. Most driving routes also have an option to be a co-driver, where you'll join one of our drivers out on the road!

Walking and cycling routes are currently operating in Old Street, Bishopsgate, Marylebone, Oxford Circus and Canary Wharf.

The Green Scheme runs from Monday to Friday and each shift takes between 1 and 3 hours depending on which route you sign-up to and you can choose which routes you want to do! Shifts run in the mornings, over lunch, and in the evenings - so you can fit it into the working today.


We require all Green Scheme volunteers to attend an online information session as their first step to volunteering with us. In these sessions, we'll share with you what the Green Scheme is, what Green Scheme volunteers do and some important information you'll need to know before you get started.
Information sessions are held online via a Microsoft Teams video call with one of our Volunteer Managers, and take around 45 minutes. Once you register, you will receive an email with a link to your session - if you don't receive the link, please check your spam folder or contact our the Green Scheme team at [email protected]

Next Information Session:

Please note that the following session will be on Tuesday 4th June 5-5:30pm. You can sign up for this by coming back to this page after the session on 31st May.

With a full-on job and social life it’s easy to stay in a little bubble. Volunteering at The Felix Project is a great way to counteract a busy life and provide perspective.
